FOLLOW-UP TO PIP GEL IMPLANT

Dr. Robert Brueck MD, Fort Myers plastic surgeon, reports on the status of French breast implants.

I wrote earlier about the French government paying to have silicone implants removed. The implants were PIP implants manufactured by Poly Implant Prothese’.

The Society of Plastic Surgeons has been monitoring the events as they unfold. To date PIP implants have not and were not approved for use in the U.S.

Again – women who engaged in “medical tourism” and went abroad to get their augmentation – well, you may want to inquire which type of implants you have.
